Congratulations and thanks to the entire extended Ubuntu community for today’s release of Ubuntu 13.04, the Raring Ringtail. Feedback over the past few months on raring has been fantastic – pretty much universal recognition of the performance and quality initiatives Rick’s team have lead and which have been embraced across the platform and the community.
Ubuntu 13.04 server released and the following important changes on new version
Ubuntu 13.04 includes the Grizzly release of Openstack. OpenStack projects supported in 13.04 include: Nova, Glance, Swift, Keystone, Horizon, Cinder and Quantum. Ceilometer is also included in 13.04 in Ubuntu Universe.
Due to various bugs in Wubi that have not been addressed in time for the final release, the Ubuntu team will not be releasing the Wubi installer with 13.04.
The Ubuntu team is very pleased to announce the release of Ubuntu 13.04 for Desktop, Server, Cloud, and Core products.

This time tomorrow hundreds of thousands of Ubuntu users across the world will be asking themselves the same question: ‘Should I upgrade to 13.04 or not?’
While tomorrow’s release lacks much of the Bang! Pop! Wow! of earlier releases, it does provide some much-needed polish to the Unity experience.
But is that worth upgrading for?
I dual-boot Ubuntu with ChromeOS on one of my Chromebooks but, annoyingly, the brightness controls don’t work out of the box.

ASUS don’t think so. They’ve just launched a new 10.1″ “notebook” – the ASUS 1015e - in the USA for a bargainous sub-$300 price tag.
